What Would I Do If Money Was Not an Issue

A Speak Your Mind essay

This is a tough question. Something that most of us dream about at some point in our lives. What if we won the lottery? What if some investment paid off?

It's easy to say, nope, wouldn't work ever again. But actually sit back and think about it. What would you do all day? Twiddle your thumbs? Manage your money? Start a new hobby?

I would like to think yes, I would most definitely work. What I am most sure about is that it would not be doing what I am doing now. As it is, I am trying to change careers to be a teacher, so I know I definitely would not stay in the accounting world.

I thrive on staying busy. I thrive on having a thousand things to do.

Just sitting around waiting for my money to earn interest just wouldn't cut it.

And yes, I would travel, but that can only be so much since the kids have school.

Teaching, I believe, is going to be something I love, and why give that up just because money is taken out of the picture. I could do what I love, and have the cash flow to do all the extra things I love.

The better question is: Would you tell your kids money was no object??

  • Amy, I think you hit it right on. Yes, we all dream about the lottery! But teaching your kids that money doesn't grow on trees... that's an important point. Even if you HAD the money, you wouldn't want to ACT like you did. Good luck with your career change!
